The first lesson any Thaumaturge learns is that the Essence of Creation is naturally prone to act in certain ways. An Exalted practitioner of the Arts and Sciences can exploit these tendencies for their own benefit. Upon activating this Charm, an Exalt spends 2 motes to reduce the threshold of a Thaumaturgy roll by one as the natural flows of Essence are brought into a more harmonious alignment.

FRUGAL PRACTITIONER METHOD

Duration: Permanent
Prerequisite Charms: Harmonious Channeling Meditation

Without a laboratory or ingredients, most Thaumaturges find their arts severely hindered. Not so the Exalted, who can use Essence to offset these impediments. However, even for these puissant thaumaturges, the greatest works of the Arts and Sciences can prove quite taxing. Thus, the Frugal Practitioner Method was developed.

Once learned, this Charm reduces the final mote cost of any ritual where the Exalt spends Essence to overcome a lack of ingredients or a lack of tools by the practitioner's Permanent Essence. This discount cannot exceed 5 motes, nor reduce the cost to less than 2 motes. Thus, if the practitioner has a Permanent Essence of 4 and spends 10 motes, the final cost of the ritual would be 6 motes.
